Bert Convy on The Price Is Right Twice

**Sorry, this clip has been removed from our database. Fortunately, there is much more to view. I invite you to look more deeply into the many moments shared here.

Here is a clip from The Price is Right, something to boost your adrenaline. Actually there are two clips here. One of me and one of Dian Parkinson. I love the audience's response. Those TPIR audiences were fantastic -- great food for the ham at heart.

I want to give credit to our viewer, Bitsey, who first told me about this clip. Thanks so much Bits.

**I'll be making two posts in August. One on the 10th, and the other on my regular date of the 20th. Hope to see you then. My warm regards, ~ Anitra

Large Splash of Ocean

After my last few posts: my visit to L.A., Father's Day and then photos that illuminated the past, I'm in the mood for a change -- something to cleanse the palate -- I think a large splash of ocean might fill the bill.

It's summer and most of the country's been sweltering under record-breaking heat. Our beaches are full, the parking lots are crowded, and perhaps that's why my thoughts keep drifting back to a cooler, quieter time. I've been thinking about a day last November.

I'm not sure what caused me to stop at Shoreline Park that day. I think it must have been the dramatic clouds (something fairly rare in Santa Barbara's perpetual blue sky.) I stood at the edge of Shoreline on a bluff above the ocean and drank in the expansive view. Leadbetter Beach curved in the foreground, with the mountains beyond it to the east.

After taking in the view from shoreline Park, I drove the short distance down the hill to park at Leadbetter Beach. There, I got out and walked to the beach wall, where I stood, basically, in one place. At the wall, I simply gazed at what I saw around me. Here is a vignette of what I found.

Wishing you all soft breezes and cool mists. My next post will be on the 20th. Hope to see you then. ~ Anitra
